The main difference between the LDHope's sensory integration therapy and other programs is that ELI is not merely a reading program, the focus is correcting learning processing deficits.
A thorough understanding of this information will help you distinguish between LDHope’s extensive educational therapy program and most other remediation and tutorial approaches.
LDHope has at its educational core a programming that has a distinct advantage over most programs because it is strictly an educational therapy program. The result of this therapeutic approach to learning difficulties is potential and dramatic gains in reading, writing, speaking, spelling and comprehension of the English language. These changes occur in developmental order from simple to complex.
The approach of LDHope is to first determine the root cause of the learning difficulty and then prescribe an individualized strategy to remove problem areas. This approach is unique. LDHope is therapeutic not compensatory.
The main difference between the LDHope sensory integration therapy and other programs is that LDHope is not merely a reading program. Our goal is to serve all students, especially the non-reached population. If a student is progressing in any other program, we do not automatically recommend that this student be enrolled in ours.
We are seeking the student that has not been able to progress in any other program and is feeling the discouragement. Because we are willing to serve the student who is failing in the classroom and students, young and old, who will likely drop out of school, our population is unique.
LDHope is referred to as an "intensive care" learning system. The educational therapy approach may be the final approach to reaching students who have not learned by other methods. The multi-sensory, interactive approach is highly successful with the non-achieving students. I am sure you can imagine the success a marginal student on LDHope would experience.
